Lubbock Midwifery team

Carmen Geyman

Owner, Certified Professional & Licensed Midwife, Certified Lactation Specialist

As the most experienced Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) in Lubbock, having attended over 1220 deliveries, she has been described as calming, reassuring, and confident. She is also a Certified Lactation Specialist who is passionate about natural health care.

“I am the wife and mother of four busy and resilient children; I enjoy being outside, listening to music, and sewing. My husband, as the business manager for Heartbeat Midwifery, has been a constant source of encouragement and support as we work together to empower and support the families in this community. 

God gave me a passion when I was 19 to be a part of the miracle of new life. Over the years I have been blessed with opportunities to work with families across the US, and internationally in Asia and Africa. 

I enjoy every phase of the childbearing year. It gives me deep satisfaction to provide families with a safe and professional environment where they can birth the way they want!

Amber Rudlong

Certified Professional & Licensed Midwife
Bachelor of Science in Nursing

“I have enjoyed learning and growing in the practice of midwifery. The way the human body works and functions is one of the amazing creations of God and the process of birth never ceases to amaze me.

I enjoy education and after midwifery school I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do, so I devoted a few more years to studying and earned my bachelors in nursing. 

I travel when I can, enjoy hiking, gardening, hunting, the great outdoors, and fermented things.”

Students are the key to the future of midwifery in West Texas. Our goal at Heartbeat Midwifery is to serve our community by investing in the women of Lubbock so that they, in turn, can care for the families in our community. Our students are a valuable part of who we are at Heartbeat.

Shiane Archer

Senior Student Midwife
Certified Lactation Specialist

Shiane began working with moms and babies in the postpartum and baby nursery. She has been diligently working towards midwifery and plans on graduating in the spring of 2023.

“I am a wife and a mom to two blessings. While I have always been interested in pregnancy and childbirth, I became increasingly more fascinated with the idea of relationship centered, holistic care after having my own babies. After almost six years of working with moms and babies as a registered nurse, God opened the door for me to begin midwifery education. Through midwifery, my ambition is to support women and their families as they navigate pregnancy and birth in the way they desire.”

Agatha Martens

Student Midwife

Agatha has been a DONA-certified doula and Lamaze Certified Childbirth educator since 2019. Many will know her for almost 100 doula clients she has cared for in Seminole and the surrounding areas. She comes with a wealth of experience and passion for natural birth!

“I have been in love with birth as far back as I can remember! After getting married and having my own four beautiful babies with midwives, that love just grew! Over the past three years, I have been blessed to start my work in the birth field as a doula and childbirth educator. I am excited to further my education in midwifery care and continue serving and loving our birth community, mamas and babies!

Besides my family and birth work, the outdoors is my love language! Yard work, gardening, farming, and lake life take up my spare time!”

Kaegan Westbrook

Student Midwife

Kaegan completed her doula training in October of 2021 and has been supporting families throughout pregnancy, birth, and postpartum ever since.

“After seeing my first out of hospital birth, I was fascinated by the process of birth and the natural abilities God has gifted women with. As I learned more about the childbearing year and support women provide each other during that time, I felt the calling to join in birth work and, one day, serve women as a midwife. It is a blessing to be a part of such a miraculous time for families and I have loved every minute of it!

Outside of work I enjoy spending time in nature doing any outdoor activities! I also love quality time with friends and family or serving my church as a vocalist on the worship team.”

Our office staff in sure that the birth team is able to do their job. Heartbeat would not function smoothly day-to-day without the tireless hours and ingenuity they put into the Birth Center.

Kylie Pearce

Office Manager

Kylie has served families as a public educator, as well as a licensed pastor for the last several years and is thrilled to be stepping into this position.

She has two sweet girls of her own, Emrie Kay (4) and Macy Jo (2) and can’t imagine life without them!

“I love spending time with my own family, and now I get to encourage other families as they grow! Each and every pregnancy and path is beautiful and truly a blessing from God. I can’t wait for the opportunity to pray for and serve expecting families during this adventure.”

Jacob Geyman

Business Administrator

Having served as a Missionary Pilot and Aircraft Technician in Botswana and Tanzania, Jacob now does everything from designing the website to overseeing the Quality Assurance Program. 

“It is very rewarding to see that what I do frees up everyone else to focus on moms and babies. Empowering the Heartbeat Midwifery team to help families through childbirth and maternity care is my job description and I love it!”
